Bay View Wastewater Treatment Plant
With original construction dating to 1922, the Bay View Wastewater Treatment Plant has undergone several upgrades over time. Today, treatment is comprised of screening, grit removal, pre-aeration, swirl concentration, primary clarification and aeration followed by conventional secondary treatments and step-aeration activated sludge processes. Effluent discharge is sent into the Maumee River.
GSI provided construction management services. Work at the plant involved the provision of a new 60 million gallon equalization basin and additional wet weather capacity aimed at doubling treatment capability and eliminating the need for partially-treated discharges. The equalization basin holds peak wastewater flows that exceed the plant’s capacity – which has itself been extended to cope with up to 158 MGD of combined raw sewage during storm periods – until the immediate demand is reduced sufficiently to allow it to be treated.
